15 years ago there were no GoPros, only gnarly Swedes and sponsored riders wore helmets and you could always find freshies right by the lift. Zoom in to now and it’s a very different picture. So how might things look in another decade and a half?
1) Riders will go bigger as they’ll care less about broken bones
Thanks to companies such as EpiBone, you’ll be able to easily grow a fresh set. It works by extracting your stem cells and working up a 3D model from your CT scan. The bone will be alive so it’ll continue growing and remodelling once it’s implanted into your body.
Ekoskeleton bionics will help those with spinal injuries walk again.
